Living in peace and harmony

Harmony Day aims to encourage people to share in the spirit of community and this Saturday shoppers visiting Woolworths in River Street, Ballina, will find local Girl Guides offering a Harmony Sausage Sizzle.The guides will hand out Harmony Day ribbons and stickers and invite people to use a world atlas to plot the countries where their families originally came from. The completed map will provide a cultural diversity snapshot of the local area.

Next Wednesday, March 21, there will also be a multicultural picnic on the grass area at the back of the Lismore Library in Magellan Street from 12 noon - 2.30pm. Wear your national dress or something orange for Harmony Day, and bring a plate of food to share and a picnic rug.
